Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

A question from a skeptic

"Could anyone of you believers tell me when the end times will happen, besides soon. It seems to me that the end times have been preached by man ever since the time they created their fictional deities." Jonathan

Here are some of the "signs" of which the Bible speaks. Nation will rise against nation. Wars. Earthquakes in various places. Money-hungry preachers will deceive many and slur the name of Christianity. It predicts a forsaking of the institution of marriage, an increase in knowledge (think of the computer era) and an increase in travel (think of air flight, train, car, etc.). A belief in "fables" (Santa Claus, etc.), and a general denial of the world-wide Noahic flood. There will be an increase in dietary concern, a forsaking of the Ten Commandments, and Israel (Jerusalem in particular) will become a huge unsolvable problem for the nations of the world. Life will become fearful for many, and men will have heart failure because of concern for the things that happen on the earth. The Scriptures speak of a cold hypocritical religious system with a mere "form of godliness."

There will be skeptics of Christianity who will particularly mock the thought of the Second Coming. The Bible even perfectly predicts your philosophy and the reason why you mock the thought. It says you will say that these signs have always been around, and you will do this for two reasons: 1. because you don’t realize that God is not subject to the dimension of time (a day to Him is as a thousand years to us), and 2. because of your love of lust. However, the big "sign" to look for is the Jews re-possession of the city of Jerusalem. That happened in 1967. For the first time in 2,000 years without a homeland, they obtained Jerusalem, and they now occupy that holy city. Despite all this, Jesus said that the gospel must be preached to the ends of the earth, and we are trying to do that in the hope that people like you will come to your senses. There's a reason why we are so concerned for you. This is because the first time Jesus came, He came a harmless lamb to suffer for the sins of the world. The second time He will come in perfect Judgment, as the conquering King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The sky will part,there will be a great noise, lightning, and incredible power. The Bible warns that He will come in a holy wrath, to punish murderers, rapists, thieves, liars, fornicators, blasphemers, adulterers, and the disobedient. It will be so fearful, humanity will call for rocks to fall on them to hide them from His power. Here are some details of what will happen:

"... and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed" (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10).

All these signs are deliberately hidden from the proud by what you are deceived into thinking is a fictional deity, in a Book you think is nothing but mythology. Your sin against God is way more serious than a heart attack. We are talking about where you will spend eternity: Heaven or Hell. If you are not sure what to do, today go to www.needGod.com
